In a custom-made outfit that samples blue, the 'indigo of their ancestors' the artist dances to rid themselves of inter-generational 'curses' and to 'curse' those who harm others. The powers of healing are summoned to destroy cursed objects: military tanks, drones, and money, and prefigures the process of healing as ongoing cycles of the past and future.

Video shot by Emily Pelstring and Stephanie Concepcion Ramirez.
